Teaching at WSU

MBioS 528: Molecular and Cellular Reproduction (45 hrs) – Fall 2022

  • As a course director, I organize a team-taught course with experts in the field of reproductive biology to give a lecture-research hybrid presentation to our graduate students.
  • Students will get opportunities to interact with experts in each subject, write news articles, and present papers pertinent to the topics.

TBE 564.04: Topics in Biomedical Experimentation: Responsible Conduct in Research (6 contact hrs) – Spring 2022

  • Lead the discussion in the NIH-WSU Protein Biotech course for graduate students on “Misconduct in Research” and “Data Acquisition & Management”.
  • Materials discussed will be from Shamoo AE & Resnik DB. (2015) Responsible Conduct of Research, 3rd Ed., Oxford University Press.

MBioS 494: [CAPS] [M] Senior Project in Molecular Biosciences (45 hrs) – Fall 2019 – 2021

  • This is a team-taught course with Drs. Martina Ederer (Instructor of Record) and Alan Goodman. The course focuses on sciences communication (presentation and writing skills). Students will present and discuss scientific research on cancer therapy, vaccine, stem cells and reproductive technologies, and gut microbiomes. I am responsible for … you know it! Stem cells and reproductive technologies section.
  • At the end of the semester, students will present to their group what they have learned in a “Biotech-start-up-pitch” style.

MBioS 529: Selected Topics in Cell Biology. Module 3: Molecular Signaling Mechanisms (15 hrs) – Spring 2019 – 2021

  • In this section, we focus on the signal transduction pathways involved in cell proliferation, cell division, cell death, cancer, innate immunity & inflammation, vertebrate reproduction, as well as cell fate and cell polarity. The format will be a combination of the lecture and paper discussion and participation.
  • The material covered in this class is based on Molecular Biology of the Cell, 6th edition by Alberts et al.

MBioS 579: Graduate Student Seminar Series (15 hrs) – Fall & Spring 2016 – present

  • Dr. Terry Hassold is the Instructor of Record for this class.
  • A weekly seminar series given by the School of Molecular Biosciences (SMB) graduate students. 
  • SMB students are required to given three seminars throughout their graduate education.
  • A 20-min talk with 5-min Q&A from the audience.
  • 1st year graduate students stay after the seminar to discuss the presentation with the speakers.

MBioS 564: Topics in Biomedical Experimentation. Module 1: Philosophy of Experimental Design (15 hrs) – Fall 2016, Spring 2018, and Spring 2019

MBioS 503: Advanced Molecular Biology. Module 1: (15 hrs) – Fall 2018

  • A 6-week-section (15 hrs) that includes the topics of Gene Organization, Genome & Evolution, Chromosomes, Chromatin, Transcription, RNA translation, and regulation, as well as protein translation.
  • The format is focused on student-led presentations and discussions.
  • The material covered is based on Lewin’s Gene XII and current publications pertinent to the topics discussed above.
